Hunting the Cosmic Dawn
27 March 2020
CONCERT HALL QPAC

Summary

Have you ever looked up at the night sky and wondered what is out there beyond our moon, our planets, our galaxy? The nature of the universe has fascinated humans forever. Now, our ever-advancing abilities to see, hear and explore the cosmos is providing clearer insight into astronomical questions.

What appeared after the big bang? What did the first stars look like? What is the nature of dark energy?

Join a cosmic journey with a bunch of astrophysicists whose passion is looking at and listening to the universe, back to its birth. How do they do it, why are they doing it and what does it all mean for us Earthlings?

Hunting the Cosmic Dawn is presented with Academic Partner The University of Queensland.
